Protect Yourself and Others from the Flu

Getting a flu shot, is the best way to lower the risk of influenza (the flu). The flu vaccine also lowers the risk of spreading the virus to family members, friends and people you work with. To protect yourself and others from getting the flu, it is best to get vaccinated in early fall before flu season begins.
